sense and avoid system missing.Huge prestige loss for German minister of defence Thomas de Maiziere. I think 600 mio would have been sufficient to find out that you need “sense and avoid” in Germany. Germany is one of the countries with the highest flight density in the world. It’s anyway a shame that sense and avoid is not law in the US.  Finally, Germany has now lost 1.3 bio for a poop.
